In today's fast-paced world, families are living farther apart geographically than any other time in history, and as a natural result, multi-generational vacations are quickly becoming the best way for extended family members to gather together and reconnect in one place. Here's why the Fairmont Scottsdale Princess is the perfect family vacation resort to meet, eat, entertain and create memories with your tribe.
It all starts with a great ‘home base.' From our cozy Casitas with stone fireplace hearths and modern Sunset Beach rooms overlooking a 9,000 square foot white sand beach to premium luxury suites fit for the royal family, we have a variety of Five Diamond room configurations to fit any size family
across a variety of budgets. With 750 rooms to choose from, you are sure to get a good night's sleep after a great day spending quality time together. Insider Tip: Be sure to reserve a connecting hospitality suite so the family can gather in one place away from public venues. Who's up for a good old fashioned family game night?
There is nothing worse than missing out on quality family time after a memorable meal because someone is stuck in the kitchen with the clean up! Not only will we do the dishes, but let us plan the perfect meal to satisfy even the pickiest little eaters in the bunch. Our four signature restaurants
offer semi-private as well as private dining options for groups of all sizes and can easily accommodate any dietary restrictions a family member may have. We can even provide family dining experiences in the comfort of your guest suite. Insider Tip: Let us create a custom meal to rekindle those cherished family traditions like a picnic on the lawn, Sunday dinner around the dining room table, backyard barbecue on the patio or ice cream social and sundae bar.
More Americans are transitioning from ‘owning things' to ‘doing things' as they place greater value on experiences, rather than possessions. Good thing creating itineraries to ensure a fun family vacation for your multi-generational travelers with something for everyone is our specialty! From life-enriching experiences, shareworthy moments for social media, and highly-customized interactions, our full-service concierge team has you covered. Allow them to book bucket list adventures like hot air balloon rides, recommend local attractions such as museums and day trips, help you pick the perfect hike to see the Sonoran Desert or score a tee time on that championship golf course so you, too, can play like a pro. Perhaps you'll find the best time is right here in our backyard
with on-site catch and release fishing in the lagoons, Trailblazers Kids Club and Family Recreation Center, sport court, playground and six different pools to splish-splash the day away. For the fitness buffs in the group, there are two fitness centers to choose from and an array of group exercise classes to suit all fitness levels including wall yoga, aerial hammock yoga, bungee fitness and wall pulley training. Maybe the spa is more your speed and your crew would prefer a day of relaxation under the waterfall or at the rooftop pool followed by a luxurious massage at Well & Being
. Insider Tip: With so many activities to choose from, don't feel obligated to plan something for every minute of every day. Sometimes having free time to rest and just take in the surroundings allows you to fully enjoy and appreciate the time you are spending with your loved ones.
